We're very honored. Thanks!

Thank you for the suggestion. I'd like to add them to the
emacs-w3m's default, but...

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be useful for Japanese. There
are some coding-systems used in the Japanese web sites:
shift_jis, euc-japan, iso-2022-jp, etc. The search result of
http://www.alltheweb.com/ contains texts just as they were in
those sites. What is worse, all escape characters have been
stripped from iso-2022-jp encoded text. I think the search
engine should convert them to be unified into one coding-system.
It will probably be fixed in the future, though. :)
In addition, is the name "fast" really pertinent? What should
we do if a faster site appears? :-p
